Did not know that. Interesting. Have no idea why they were mothballed for so long, but am glad to see them get some fresh air.

My guess is it takes a lot of balls and creative muster to try to pull of traditional Jerry tunes. Not an easy feat. On another note though as someone who has only observed only from afar in recent years it seems as though there is a friendly competition going on between Weir and Lesh busting out crazy shit like this which seems to have brought out the best in both of them. Very interesting like instead of 2 drummers we have 2 bands jammin through the cosmos. Hmmm this probably makes sense only to myself but though I'd throw in my 2 cents this time.

Phil Lesh Shares “Werewolves Of London” with RatDog

Both Phil Lesh & Friends and RatDog performed in New York last night [HALLOWEEN] and both groups encored with a standalone version of Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London” (a Jerry Garcia Band Halloween tradition). Bob Weir and RatDog performed at Westbury, NY’s Westbury Music Fair and invited out area resident, and former Dead keyboardist, Rob Baracco for a version of “The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)” at the end of their first set. Baracco later returned alongside keyboardist Dred Scott during the group’s encore for a Halloween cover of “Werewolves of London.” For the performance, the group also lined the stage with a series of carved out pumpkins which spelled the RatDog.

Meanwhile, a few miles away, Phil Lesh & Friends opened their extended residency at New York’s Nokia Theater Times Square. To mark Halloween, Lesh ran through a diverse mix of covers, including Jackie Greene’s “Don't Let The Devil Take Your Mind,” Screamin Jay Hawkins’ “I Put A Spell on You,” The Who’s “Boris the Spider,” Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Chile” and the Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy For The Devil.” Keyboardist Steve Molitz also supplied lead vocals on a cover of Phish’s “Ghost” and Lesh read Edgar Allen Poe’s "The Pit and the Pendulum" offstage while his band jammed at the beginning of the evening’s second set. The quintet then closed out the evening with a version of “Werewolves Of London.”

Then there's Mickey's recent comment:

JPG: Interesting, but what I was getting to was that there are so many things we’ve talked about in the past from field recordings to work with the Smithsonian, studies relating to rhythm and the brain, I’m still waiting for the Bembe Orisha album. Anything coming up later this year? Next year?

MH: There’s a lot of stuff but I really can’t talk about that now for various reasons. Just concentrate on what I’m doing right now. You can be sure that something…there’s a lot of things that are gonna be popping up next year, that are going to be really exciting. I’d rather concentrate on the business at hand. I’ll never stop. I’m a work in progress. You know that already from our history. Believe me, I’m not going to be treading old turf. I’m not going to be beating up Grateful Dead music the rest of my life. Leave that to others.

Great info and from that it seems to make even more sense that Weir and Lesh are forming something of a helix pattern with their performances. Funny though that the original twin helix drummers are also seemingly content to be in their solo universes right now. Gathering of the Tribes anyone.
